There are no stupid questions, just stupid people. I kid i kid, but if it is in fact an 8800 ultra, thats an awsome card. I would assume its pci-e, i dont think 8800s come in AGP.

I just had a flash of what you were thinkin' peter...

But since you got that 8800Ultra, why ask if it's worth it? You already have all the high end components to support it.
